It’s been a few weeks since Nvidia’s RTX 30 series released, but it’s not easy to find stock. Because the mining flow, which has been gaining speed in recent months, is melting graphics card stocks. As such, those needing a new generation of graphics cards to play games can’t find stock. Steam’s report shows that sales of the RTX 3070 were on the players side.
RTX 3070 sales benefited players
Such powerful graphics cards are often bought by cryptocurrency miners as soon as they come in stock. According to the report published by Steam, the players had better luck this time. Because we can already see the card in the most used hardware list.
Reading the data in the table, we see that 1.29 percent of Steam users participating in the survey are using RTX 3070. Even though the card has just launched, it makes us happy to see this value. The operating speeds of the other RTX 30 series graphics cards are as follows:
The RTX 3080 has an occupancy rate of 0.87 percent, RTX 3060 Ti 0.39 percent and RTX 3090 0.39 percent.
Since there is no card from AMD’s RX 6000 series on this list, we can say that sales of the RTX 3070 have reached the players.
The RTX 3060 didn’t do well
When the RTX 3060 was announced with mining protection, the players breathed a sigh of relief. But days after the card went on sale, it became clear that those using Nvidia’s beta drivers can earn cryptocurrency. As this news spread, the eyes of cryptocurrency miners turned to this card. The 45 MH / S digging power that can be achieved with the protection removed doesn’t sound bad.
We hope producers will find a solution to stock wars between miners and players.
